As my co-worker Jeannie invited me to stay at her apartment due to an unexpected event that had, unfortunately, happened to me in recent weeks. She also extended an invitation to the Tiffany’s 130th Anniversary held at the store on Newbury st.

Every cloud has a silver lining!

We not only got to try on beautiful sparkly diamonds, but also met the chief gemologist Melvyn Kirtley himself!

Chatting with Melvyn expanded my knowledge in diamond industry as well as the responsibilities as a gemologist.

He traveled to the diamond mines (which is not the prettiest part of making diamond accessaries) all over the world to find the most precious and high quality diamonds. As a chief spokesperson with his decades of experience at Tiffany’s, he’s able to provide the best gemological expertise to clients.

Melvyn’s standard can be defined by his own words, “I will reject 99.96% of the world’s finest diamonds because there’s a difference between quality and Tiffany quality.”

Side note *Every content and successful person that I have met has one thing in common, they work extremely hard for their dreams with a positive and humble attitude.

Diamonds and flowers are girls best friends! Tiffany really knows what’s up.
